If you’re walking along Sainte-Catherine street in downtown Montreal at night, be prepared to be freaked out by a display of Apple retail zombies employees.
I don’t know what enticed this particular Apple store to put up this display of Mac Zombie cutouts, but it got creepier as I approached the store. A legion of Apple retail employees, frozen, waiting to sell you a MacBook Pro – and possibly eat your brains.
As someone who gets accused of “drinking the Apple Kool-Aid” sometimes, despite the fact that I never hesitate to bash bad Apple products (like the TV and virtually every mouse the company has ever made) I can see how this particular display makes Apple look a little cultish.
This time, Apple has gone too far. Or perhaps these are just real employees awaiting the Hale-Bopp comet.
One reply on “Note to Apple: This does nothing to alleviate the cult stereotype”
I’d say it makes Apple seem desperate for attention; they hardly need it with 1M iPads sold and May 10th just around the corner!
